Flip Men - Flip jump - Netflix

The flip jump (usually just flip) is a figure skating jump which takes off from a backward inside edge with a toe pick assist, and lands on the backward outside edge of the opposite foot. In the early 20th century, the jump was known as a Mapes. In international competition, women have landed flips with three rotations since 1981, and men have landed flips with four rotations since 2016.

Flip Men - History - Netflix

The origins of the flip jump are obscure. Starting in 1913, the jump was known for many years as a Mapes (now applied to the toe loop in the jargon of artistic roller skating), but it is not known for certain if Bruce Mapes was the inventor. It was certainly being commonly performed by the 1930s. It is also not definitely established who performed the first triple flip; David Jenkins may have landed the jump in the 1950s, but perhaps only in practice. Donald Jackson is said to have performed one at the 1961 North American Figure Skating Championships. Another source claims that no skater had yet landed one in competition as late as 1968, when John Misha Petkevich was performing them in practice. Katarina Witt was one of two female skaters to land a triple flip for the first time at the 1981 European Championships. Daisuke Takahashi made an attempt at a quad flip at the 2010 World Championships. Shoma Uno became the first skater to ever land a quadruple flip at the 2016 Team Challenge Cup
